The grand finale for The Burning Crusade
The last batch of content for The Burning Crusade Classic is finally here. The expansion is on its last leg before the wait for the next update comes. Still, there are items to collect, raids to master, and WoW TBC gold to earn. Let’s look at what TBC Classic’s Phase 5 contains.
The Isle of Quel’danas
This island is one-third of the Quel’Thalas, the kingdom of the Elves. It hosts the destroyed Sunwell, twisted by an attempt of the corrupted Arthas to summon Kel’Thuzad. Following this event, Prince Kael’thas Sunstrider led the surviving high elves and renamed them Blood Elves.
Through his efforts, the elves took much of their kingdom back. Yet, he became twisted in the current expansion. Now, he wants to use the Sunwell to bring the leader of the Legion to Azeroth. Of course, that’s the player’s job, to fight him alongside some NPCs.
Once you’ve taken back the island, you’ll be able to trade with reputation merchants, do daily quests, and gain access to the Sunwell Plateau and the Magister’s Terrace. The faction of the area is the Shattered Sun Offensive, and they offer the following:
- Several Jewelcrafting recipes
- Some Enchanting recipes
- Highest-level (for the expansion) Alchemist Stone Trinket recipes
The Magister’s Terrace
It’s a 5-person dungeon accessible through the Isle of Quel’danas. It offers many high-level gear and TBC items, especially the rare Swift White Hawkstrider mount. Here are the bosses you can encounter in the dungeon:
- Selin Fireheart
- Priestess Delrissa
- Kael’thas Sunstrider
Players have to be at level 70 to enter the dungeon. No attunements are needed, but the quest “Hard to Kill” Is required to unlock Heroic Mode. Kael’thas also has a chance to drop the mentioned mount and a Baby Phoenix pet. There are no optional bosses. All four must be defeated to complete the dungeon.
As the penultimate bosses, don’t expect a walk in the park! That comes later after a few runs. Make sure you’re prepared for them. Consider running this dungeon a few times before hitting the Sunwell Plateau! As the final raid of the expansion, you can be sure that it will be challenging for any under-geared character.
The Sunwell Plateau
This is a 25-man raid for the fate of the Legion and the Sunwell. It has six mandatory bosses, as its form is linear, and you can’t skip any of them. Most corridors will be filled with trash mobs your group will have to wade through.
The six bosses in the Plateau are:
- Kalecgos and Sathrovarr
- Eredear Twins: Alythess & Sacrolash
Yes, the pairs are counted as one because they’re fought simultaneously. One of the most valuable loot in TBC Classic gold from this raid is the legendary Thori’dal, the Stars’ Fury bow. This is a big thing for Hunters, Warriors, and Rogues, as it’s a bow that doesn’t use ammo. It also boasts a high damage output and other potent characteristics.
Of course, Kil’jaeden is the one who can drop this weapon. The other bosses will drop Tier 6 equipment tokens instead, among other things. You can only run this raid once a week, and it needs no attunements to enter.
WoTLK vs. Burning Crusade Classic
Wrath of the Lich King Classic is the next step if you haven’t heard yet. As it is one of the most popular expansions of the game, players expect this to be the high point of Classic. Many veterans look back on it fondly.
It has one of the best storylines of any World of Warcraft expansion, as it closes the story of one of the most well-known and loved characters of the franchise. Others hate him, but he’s one of the most fleshed-out characters, and fans needed closure on his story.
Other than that, WoTLK has the best class versatility of any expac. Many players enjoyed the freedom of building characters with unusual abilities. There’s also the Death Knight, which debuts in this update. It’s the poster class of this character-building philosophy. With all three branches of their skill trees focused on tanking and another DPS role, they’re interesting to build.
Classic is for those who yearn for the old times and run on nostalgia. While veterans are more likely to play it instead of Retail, some still prefer the latter or both. Whatever a player’s preference of the game’s version, a few things are constant.
One of those is the need for WoW TBC gold. No matter what level or class their characters are or the version of the game they play, that need is a constant. From repairing equipment to traveling across Azeroth, you’ll always need to have some currency on hand.
